Summer in Florida, AKA Treadmill Time

Beat the Heat Pinnable GFX

I created this treadmill workout that features incline work, no drastic speed changes, and is scaleable for time and energy. Like it? Pin it!

In Through Your Nose, Out Through Your Nose

Breathe In Pinnable

Breathe in through your nose. Breathe out through your nose. And repeat as needed. How Ujjayi breathing and pranayama can help you de-stress even when you’re not on the yoga mat (it works for me!). #yoga #meditation

Fit Move Friday: Single Leg Lift With Alternating Window Washers

Window Washers

This is a fun, body weight-only exercise that you can do in just two minutes, while watching TV, waiting for dinner to cook, or right before bed (and while there are modifications, you’ll see that it’s pretty tough — I’m out of breath after just three minutes of demonstration!).

My Heart is in Boston

RW Half Codes 2

It’s bizarre to me that last year at almost this exact time, I was pouring my heart out in a post called “The Day I Most Miss Being in Boston.” It was a love letter to my hometown, and since I was feeling particularly homesick, I really wished I could have teleported myself to the Boston Marathon starting line, to recreate the memories I’d had as a child. I’d like that teleporter again in 2014.

What the Heck is PiYo Strength?


I’m a newly certified PiYo Strength instructor — and I’m in love with the format. It’s strength building — lunges, push-ups, burpees — combined with postures from yoga and pilates — the warrior series, sun salutations — set to Top 40 music. It’s not like any other yoga class you’ve ever taken, but you will build flexibility, balance and sweat a heck of a lot.
